Creating and Strengthening Identities: Greek and Roman Stereotypes of the East - 08-09/02/2019, Athe

The intention of the workshop is to bring together a set of papers and contributors with the hope of reassessing some of the Greco-Roman literary and mental stereotypes that tended to be primed by associations with the 'East' and 'Easterners.' We are extremely pleased to have as our two keynote speakers professor Emma Dench from Harvard and professor Tom Harrison from St Andrews.
